The Yankees made their third trade of the month on Tuesday, sending Melky Cabrera and two prospects to the Braves for starting pitcher Javier Vazquez and left-handed reliever Boone Logan. As I wrote for today’s newspaper, general manager Brian Cashman said the Yankees are unlikely to add another “big piece” this winter. With Vazquez in the mix, the bulk of the Yankees offseason shopping might be finished.

As Sam wrote,┬áthe Yankees have made moves that will help next season, but they haven’t given up the future in the process. By trading for Vazquez and Curtis Granderson without surrendering Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain or Jesus Montero, the Yankees have added big pieces without losing their top young players.
